The Giver in 90 Seconds (2012)
I believe this one requires a little explanation. If you aren’t familiar with the 90-second-Newbery film festival, I highly reccomend you give it a look. Kids from all over the world shoot 90-second-long movies telling the story of a Newbery Award-Winning book. The Giver, by Lois Lowry, is one of my personal favorites, so I decided to give it a try.

The Giver in 90 Seconds was screened at the 2012 90-second Newberry Festival.


School Skits (2010)
In 2010, Leo started MovieMaster Studios, a children’s company for kids in his community to meet up and write/shoot short films. They produced two movies over the course of a year, Silenphora: Quest for Vengeance and School Skits.

School Skits received the Clay Crow Award at the RolikiFest Kid Film Festival in Moscow, Russia. (May 2011)


Silenphora – Quest for Vengeance (2010)

In the faraway land of Silenphora, the witches started a rebellion. The great King Peru has fallen, and only his son Thasius, teamed with a rag-tag team of heroes, can defeat the evil witches once and for all.

A short film produced by  Moviemaster Studios along School Skits in the 2010 Fall term.
